We invite you to participate and enjoy the original Dunstan Trail over the “Mountain Track” on Sunday 13 April.
This is a unique opportunity to traverse four private sheep stations and follow the original route that the early pioneers took to travel to Central Otago in search of gold. We will follow in exactly the same tracks that the wagons went over and get some idea of the hardships and obstacles they faced.
We will be accompanied by Grahame Sydney, who will have available signed copies of his wonderful book, ‘Promised Land’ and he will be narrating some of the anecdotal history along the trail. (more…)

"In partnership with Vivace Coffee, the NZHPT asked third generation artisan master roaster Bernard Smith to develop a blend of three original coffee beans that best emulated the strength of the site, the body of the ‘big skies’ Central Otago landscape and the sweetness of its sun overhead."
